Drawing on a constructivist approach to international history which empha- sizes the impact of cultural factors in the definition of the national interest pursued by states through their foreign policy, this essay retraces some sa- lient stages of the confrontation between Russia and Europe/the West with an eye to reciprocal representations and the identity/alterity nexus (Iver Neu- mann). This issue has acquired further topicality during the period starting from the Ukrainian crisis of 2014 and culminating in the Russo-Ukrainian war that broke out in February 2022.

Keywords: Russia and the West; International Relations; Russia and the European Union; Self-Other Relations; Russian Foreign Policy; Ukrainian Crisis and Russo-Ukrainian War.
